When you use Windows NT Services for Macintosh (SFM) to copy a directory from a Macintosh computer, some icons may be missing on the destination.


Some custom icons are stored on the disk as hidden files. If the hidden file uses a Unicode character in its filename, the File Manager uses the shortname to copy the file. Because the destination file has a different name, the icon is lost.


There is no method to work around this situation at this time.
